Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 709241
failure when listing repos after channel removal
Last modified: 2012-02-21 01:18:30 EST
Description of problem:
When yum knew about some (RHN) channel before and then I removed that channel from it's (RHN) profile, `yum repolist` fails on that system even after `yum clean all`.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # yum repolist / upgrade /...
2. Remove one channel from RHN profile
3. # yum clean all
4. # yum repolist
# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
file://var/cache/yum/redhat-rhn-satellite-5.3-server-x86_64-5/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 5] OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/cache/yum/redhat-rhn-satellite-5.3-server-x86_64-5/repodata/repomd.xml'
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: redhat-rhn-satellite-5.3-server-x86_64-5. Please verify its path and try again
This should work without need to run `rm -rf /var/cache/yum/*`.
This looks to be related: bug 684342, bug 705335 and bug 703169.
I can confirm it. And I'm able to reproduce it.
Hmm subsequent run of yum repolist, succeed. I suppose that /var/cache/yum/rhnplugin.repos will be in fault...
